I love her. She won the spot that she could compete for. I've seen them all in person and you guys are judging based on pictures. She's got nothing on Stephanie who is by far a better choice for MU. She could do great at MW but she'd be lost at MU
At this moment, maricely is one of the most beautiful Latin contestants of Miss World 2012. Overall the Latin contestants chosen so far are not too impressive, so Panama could steal the spot reserved for Latinas and very well repeat their placement at Miss World 2009 this year.
Maricely Pomares of Panama takes the stage in a gorgeous gold and pink lame corset dress as the opening bars of Disney's Colors of the Wind are heard.
She starts the song in English and her voice is clear and pure. As she hits the middle of the song - and some stunning high notes - she changes to Spanish. It's such a lovely touch and the audience really enjoy it.
